        I love love love The Path. It gets at Changeling in a more artsy way that I think really gets the tone perfectly. Check it out:

            It's a modern retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. You play as a Changeling. At this point, I'm not sure if you're engaging genuinely, so I'll be taking my leave. Good luck!

                Maybe you could specify your preferences and "definitions" a bit more?

                I could list thousands of games where you play some sort of "supernatural" creature. In some games that actually means something, in other games it's just one sort of character option. Like in Morrowind, you can play a vampire (and with all the expansions) or a werewolf. But it is also a game where summoning a spirit to aid you is a starting level ability for some characters.

                As an aside, the idea of being put off by only having a female playable character comes off... rather insensitive. Lots and lots of games only allow you to play men, and very few only allow you to play women. For games that don't have high levels of player character customization, it seems odd to reject one gender over the other instead of trusting that the gender choice is important to the story.

                  There's the Legacy of Kain series of video games, and their MOBA-ish spinoff Nosgoth. Killer Instinct allows you to play a werewolf and various other supernatural creatures, as does Darkstalkers and the Bloody Roar series. Technically Rampage lets you play a werewolf of sorts, I think World of Warcraft has one too now. There really are a lot of games where you play supernatural creatures.

                      Planescape: Torment comes to mind. You basically play as an immortal pseudo-zombie and the game explores a lot of the same ground that Promethean does. I really haven't played another game that touched on some of those ideas in quite the same way. Lots of words though, so if you don't like reading a ton of text you're out of luck.

                      On the subject of male/female avatars, I find I generally prefer to have a female avatar in a video game, especially any game in which you get changes of clothing. If I'm going to dress a character up in clothing I'd rather play dress up with a cute girl character than a guy. Though sometimes you get the option to have really handsome dudes or clothing that looks particularly good on a male character, and then I have a tough time deciding.

                        * Aragami, in which you play a spirit of vengeance called to rescue his summoner from an army of light-wielding soldiers. You control shadow essence that allows you to be nearly invisible in deep shadows, teleport short distances, and attack from the darkness.

                        * Dishonored, and its sequel Dishonored 2. Both are games in which you control an assassin given supernatural powers by a mysterious entity called the Outsider. These abilities may include teleportation, stopping time, possession, and summoning swarms of rats to eat your enemies alive.

                        * DOOM (2016), in which you play the Doomslayer, scourge of demonkind. This, of course, assumes that you consider "being able to rip demons apart with your hands alone and absorb their soul-essence" to be enough of a power. Seriously, though. Literally the first thing you do in the game is shatter the chains that were holding you inside a coffin covered in runes and start tearing heads off.

                        * Fran Bow, in which you play a mentally disturbed child with the ability to shift between dimensions... maybe. This is an adventure game, not an action game, but if you enjoy weird horror stories then you might like this.

                        * Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, in which you play the Gravewalker, a man trapped between life and death, bound in soul to an ancient elf and sworn to take revenge on Orc-kind - mostly by stabbing them. Said ancient elf eventually gets the ability to control minds, allowing you to lead an orc horde of your own.

                        * Qasir Al-Wasat, in which you control a demon summoned by a sorcerer to assassinate several people. The demon is invisible and can metabolize poisons for various effects, but it is too frail to win in a head-on fight. The demon also has its own agenda - play your cards right, and you may be able to free yourself of the sorcerer's control...

                        * Second Sight, in which you control a powerful psychic who has escaped from a mental institution. Your ability to manipulate the minds of others or attack them with telekinetic force supplement cover-based shooter gameplay.

                        Let me know if any of that is in the ballpark, and I may have further suggestions. Do you want things that are more focused on story or action? Plots with lots of characters? Fantasy, sci-fi, or real-world-ish setting?

                        (EDIT: Wow, there are a lot of supernatural stealth/assassin games out there. I haven't even listed all the ones I own.)

                        On the frontier of the Wild South, there's only one woman with the grit to take on its most dangerous outlaws and bring them Back Alive, or Maybe Dead.

                          On Shadow of Mordor, I vaguely seem to remember something about someone on the team being a fan of Exalted. Anybody else happen to remember about that?

                            Psi-Ops, the Mindgate Conspiracy. Like Second Sight, to the point I sometimes confuse the two in my head.
